Introducing the Honda Civic Type-R
Honda themselves describe the Civic Type R as a muscular and performance-focused car engineered for a rewarding driving experience on both the road and the race track.
From the exterior, the Honda Civic Type R offers an aggressive silhouette. Aerodynamics were especially important in the design of the Type R to ensure minimal drag and reduced turbulence this has been achieved by keeping the airflow as close to the body as possible with short overhangs and taut lines. The theme continues with the rear wing spoiler, aluminium bonnet, front vents and vortex generators.
Its sporty design also includes 20” alloys, 245/30 ZR20 tyres, triple exhaust, Brembo brakes and LED lights. The Civic Type R is currently available in 6 colours.
As with the new Honda Civic, the Type R features a lightweight and yet rigid body shell alongside a lower centre of gravity and new suspension system to improve the dynamics of the car. Elements of the car have also been relocated to ensure that there is an improved weight distribution to improve both the dynamics and stability of the car.
The 2.0-litre VTECH TURBO 6 speed manual engine offers 320 PS at 6,500rpm with peak torque at 400 NM from 2,500rpm to 4,500rpm. It is able to achieve 0-62mph in a speedy 5.7 seconds with a top speed of 169 mph. Combined fuel consumption is 36.7 mpg and CO2 emissions are 176g/km.
The gearbox features a rev-matching function that eliminates transmission shock from excessive or insufficient revving of the vehicle.
There are 3 driving modes available on the Civic Type R. ‘Comfort’ offers an economical driving mode suitable for regular day to day driving on city roads, ‘Sport’ offers a more precise handling mode more suited to open road and ‘+R’ mode is ideal for spending a day on the circuit.
The interior of the Honda Civic Type R offers a sporty ambience with suede-effect red and black fabric trim high backed sports seats, red leather inserts, machined alloy spherical gear lever knob and hexagonal stitching on the steering wheel and a carbon centre inlay with red pinstripe pin on the dashboard panel and door cards.
Infotainment includes HDMI and USB ports, 12 vault power socket and seven inch Honda CONNECT colour touch-screen display featuring Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The collision mitigation braking system will alert you to the possibility of a collision with either another vehicle or a pedestrian and assist you in reducing your speed to help minimise the severity of an impact. Other Honda SENSING suite features include forward collision warning, lane departure warning, road departure mitigation, lane keeping assist system, adaptive cruise control and intelligent speed assistance.More info > Interested in leasing this vehicle?
